Jaakko Pietiläinen: Architectural Digest
15.4.2023-21.5.2023 (Tue–Sun at 11–17)
Galleria Sinne, Iso Roobertinkatu 16, Helsinki
In his nex exhibition Architectural Digest, Jaakko Pietiläinen continues to build from where he started in his earlier works and exhibitions. This exhibition at Sinne is an architectural study in which he shows two works with labyrinthine settings: a projected video and a monumental digital printout. Pietiläinen draws inspiration, among other things, from modernist architecture, the world of games, and phenomena both online and offline. He creates an uncomfortable atmosphere in which he uses a comic, human perspective to further add a certain warmth. In his art, human being and architecture flow together into one, where buildings become a physical experience, resonating with our inner selves.
Singers from the Helsinki Chamber Choir (Eleriin Müüripeal, Keri Kallio, David Hackston, Martti Anttila and Riku Laurikka) sing on the soundtrack of the video work Sentences.
